I am spending my summer traveling with BookSparks in this year’s #SRC2015. Right now, I am traveling with Beautiful Girl by Fleur Philips. Destination: Hit the mountains of Montana.
Beautiful Girl by Fleur Philips
About The Book:
Seventeen-year-old Melanie Kennicut is beautiful. Her entire life revolves around this beauty because her overly controlling mother has been dragging her to casting calls and auditions since she was four years old. According to Joanne Kennicut, Melanie was born to follow in her footsteps. But Melanie never wanted this life.
This is a great coming of age story, as well as a story about the relationships between a mother and daughter. It was a quick read, but really enjoyable. I love this author!
